Clothing

Clothes aren't gendered.
In fact, we as a society, are responsible for socially constructing meanings and attaching them to different genders. So dresses in and of themselves have no gender. But we attach dresses to female-identified people, and so we come to think of dresses as a woman's outfit.

Anyway, its weird because there are clothes I want to wear but I want to wear them with a flat chest. And only with a flat chest, so that doesn't really work.

I'm disappointed, though.

I really want to wear v-neck shirts, and tank tops. But not with a chest.

Blah.

It's late and I'm getting tired/lazy and whiny (I think?) so I'll write more on this topic later. I'm hoping I can do one journal entry a day, if possible.

As always, feel free to leave comments or ask questions, etc.

My boyfriend looks awesome in v-necks and tank tops...

I'm sure you will, too, if you decide to get yours flattened surgically, or bind them (I'm not sure if the binding would peek though) C:

Boys in v-necks / boys in tank tops are awesome :D

I need to get a better binder first, if I'm going to do that, but I'd love to :)

Social constructions around gender are wierd and there's no easy way to unpack them without threatening other people's identities, be they cis or trans*.
